टिकट काउंटर को कैशलेस बनाने को लेकर रेलवे ने काम करना शुरू कर दिया है। जनवरी में कई रेलवे स्टेशनों पर स्वाइप मशीनें लगाने की तैयारी रेलवे ने शुरू कर दी है। जम्मू कश्मीर में पहले चरण में जम्मू, कटड़ा व उधमपुर रेलवे स्टेशन पर ये मशीनें लगाई जा सकती हैं।
इसके अलावा उधमपुर व कटड़ा रेलवे स्टेशन पर टिकट वेंडिंग मशीनें भी लगाने के लिए फिरोजपुर डिविजन से अनुमति मिल चुकी है। कैशलेस योजना को बढ़ावा देने के लिए केंद्र सरकार की तरफ से लगातार नए कदम उठाए जा रहे हैं और इसी चरण में अब रेलवे को भी कैशलेस करने की तैयारी शुरू हो चुकी है।

की तरफ से रेलवे स्टेशन के टिकट काउंटर पर स्वाइप मशीनें लगाई जाएंगी, ताकि यात्रियों को टिकट खरीदने के लिए नकदी की परेशानी का सामना न करना पड़े। रेलवे इस योजना को जनवरी में शुरू कर सकता है। 15 जनवरी के बाद यह मशीनें रेलवे स्टेशन पर काम करना शुरू कर देंगी।

जम्मू-कटड़ा रेलवे ट्रैक पर विद्युत इंजन ट्रेन चलाने के लिए हरी झंडी मिली गई है। कमिश्नर रेलवे सेफ्टी (सीआरएस) एसके पाठक ने सोमवार को 78 किलोमीटर ट्रैक के निरीक्षण के बाद कहा कि ट्रैक सुरक्षित और अद्भुत है।
सुरक्षा की कसौटी पर ट्रैक पूरी तरह से खरा उतरा है। अब विद्युत इंजन ट्रेन चलाने का फैसला जब चाहे लिया जा सकता है। औपचारिक रूप से वे मंगलवार को अपनी रिपोर्ट उत्तरी रेलवे को सौंपेंगे। कहा कि बिजली की कमी के कारण शुरू में एक या दो ट्रेन ही चलाई जा सकेंगी, लेकिन, अपने दो पावर स्टेशन बनने के बाद सभी ट्रेेनें चलाई जा सकती हैं।

सुबह करीब सवा नौ बजे फिरोजपुर डिविजन के डीआरएम अनुज प्रकाश के साथ सीआरएस जम्मू पहुंचे और निरीक्षण के लिए निकल गए। कई पुलों और टनलों का निरीक्षण करने के बाद दोपहर करीब एक बजे उधमपुर पहुंचे। सीआरएस ने उधमपुर में सबसे पहले एसएम पैनल कक्ष का दौरा किया।
उन्होंने बताया किइस ट्रैक पर केवल डीजल ट्रेनें दौड़ रहीं हैं। विद्युत इंजन ट्रेन चलाने के लिए सारी औपचारिकताएं तो पूरी कर ली गईं हैं, लेकिन, एक बार जम्मू-कटड़ा रेल ट्रैक का निरीक्षण किया जाना बेहद जरूरी था।

राष्ट्रीय महत्व की महत्वपूर्ण योजनाओं में शुमार कश्मीर तक रेल संपर्क अभी तक अधूरा ही है। इसके लिए बनी उधमपुर-श्रीनगर-बारामुला रेल लिंक ( यूएसबीआरएल) परियोजना की लागत 1500 करोड़ रुपये से बढ़ कर 20 हजार करोड़ रुपये तक पहुंच चुकी है।
आजादी के बाद रेलवे की सबसे चुनौतीपूर्ण योजना में शुमार यूएसबीआरएल प्रोजेक्ट अब तक लटका हुआ है। इसके तहत कटड़ा-काजीगुंड खंड को अभी पूरा किया जाना है। इस सेक्शन में काजीगुंड से बनिहाल तक तो प्रोजेक्ट पूरा कर लिया गया है, लेकिन, कटड़ा-बनिहाल तक 110 किलोमीटर की पट्टी अभी तक अधूरी है।

2007 में ही पूरा करने का लक्ष्य रखा गया था। संशोधित तिथि दिसंबर 2017 रखी गई थी जो अब बढ़कर 2020 हो गई है। इस पूरे प्रोजेक्ट को लेकर संसदीय लोक लेखा समिति ने कड़ी आपत्ति भी दर्ज की है।
समिति का कहना है कि रेल मंत्रालय का तर्क है कि सुरंगों के गिरने, पुलों के डिजाइनों में परिवर्तन से लेकर पानी का रिसाव होने की वजह से परियोजना में देरी हुई। रेलवे ने प्रोजेक्ट की सुस्त रफ्तार के लिए समिति को कई तर्क दिए हैं। इनमें प्रतिकूल मौसम, असाधारण बारिश, हिमपात, बाढ़, निर्माण सामग्री के परिवहन में बार-बार अवरोध आदि शामिल हैं।
समिति ने कहा है कि यह मंत्रालय की कमी को दर्शाता है। रेलवे को प्रतिष्ठित परामर्श दाता कंपनियों की सेवा पहले ही ले लेनी चाहिए थी। लोक लेखा समिति ने इस पूरे प्रोजेक्ट में यह भी नोट किया है कि उधमपुर-कटड़ा जिसे मार्च 2003 में पूरा होना था वह 4 जुलाई 2014 में पूरा हुआ।
लोकलेखा समिति ने रेलवे से कहा है कि आगे से निर्माण कार्य आरंभ होने से काफी पहले अध्ययन किया जाए। विस्तृत भूवैज्ञानिक और भू-तकनीकी अध्ययन पर जोर दिया जाए। डीपीआर चरण में ही अनुभवी परामर्शदाताओं, विदेशी परामर्शदाताओं व संस्थानों की सहायता सुनिश्चित कर ली जाए।

ministry has approved four projects: Kaithal-Shamli-Meerut, Nawalgarh-Jhajjar and Neemka Thana, Jakhal-Fatehabad Bahuna-Ratia, Meerut-Panipat, and Bhiwani-Loharu.
Pathankot-Joginder Nagar gauge conversion and new Joginder Nagar-Mandi lines were approved in Himachal Pradesh and one project for Jammu and Kashmir: Jammu to Poonch via Akhnoor and Rajouri.
Suresh Prabhu said that in Jammu and Kashmir, despite difficult terrain and uncertain geology, work on the Katra-Banihal section of Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link Project is progressing satisfactorily and 35 km of tunnelling out of a total of 95 km has been completed successfully.
He said that the decongestion work on the Jalandhar- Jammu line, an important link to the valley, is going on in full swing. Doubling of two bridges will be commissioned by March, while the other two bridges will be completed by 2016-17.
“We intend taking up on priority the provision of passenger amenities and beautification of the Amritsar railway station,” the Minister said.

JAMMU, Jan 9: Signaling the end of wait and setting into motion the job on much talked about Jammu Railway Division project, announced around two years ago, General Manager, Northern Railway, conducted inspection of proposed sites for the office of Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) and new Good Terminal, here today.
The top officer, A K Puthia, visited Jammu Tawi, Bari Brahmana and Bajalta Railway Stations for inspection of the proposed sites for new DRM office and relocating the Goods Terminal, official sources told the Excelsior.
Two sites, Jammu Tawi Railway Station and Bajalta

Station, were inspected for setting up proposed DRM office while for the Goods Terminal, possibilities were explored for relocating the same to Bari Brahmana or Bajalta Station, sources explained.
Mr Puthia was accompanied by Divisional Railway Manager of Ferozpur Division, Anuj Prakash Kumar, who apprised him about the ongoing developmental works in Jammu area.
It may be recalled that the announcement for creating new Railway Division at Jammu and delinking it from the present Ferozpur Division of Northern Railways, was made around two years back. However, there was no visible progress so far, in this regard.
According to the sources, Mr Puthia visited Jammu with a specific purpose to explore and discuss the possibilities of relocating the Goods Terminal of Jammu Tawi to new and convenient location, besides identifying the site for the proposed office of DRM Jammu.
Soon after reaching here this morning, sources said, the officer conducted survey for possible site for new DRM office in Jammu Tawi area itself and relocating the Goods terminal, most probably to Bari Brahmana, which was also visited for the purpose. Thereafter, the GM visited Bajalta Railway Station for identifying the site for DRM office and also for Good Terminal.
Even as final decision on the sites would be taken after detailed deliberations, sources hint that Jammu Tawi is likely to be selected for DRM office and Bari Brahmana for new Goods Terminal.
Pertinent to mention that relocating of Goods Terminal to new location would greatly help in decongesting the Jammu Tawi Railway Station complex and create space for new coaching terminals at Jammu itself. This would also provide scope for second entry to the Station premises besides decreasing the pollution level in the area as Cement and Fertilizer traffic will no longer come to Jammu Tawi Station. Last but not the least, this would also suit the traders, who are important clients for Railways as they would have comparatively easier access for the goods loading and unloading at new proposed location. at Bari Brahmana.
The new Goods terminal would be modern in design with total focus on passengers’ convenience and amenities, sources explained while highlighting its various features.
Similarly, the Jammu Railway Division will open employment opportunities for thousands of workers and will bring about drastic change in the economy of the State besides more focusing on reconstruction and modernization of the Railway here.

JAMMU, Jan 1: Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu has agreed to the demand for construction of new Railway Station for Jammu as present station was facing heavy rush and congestion due to increased number of trains and pilgrims of Mata Vaishno Devi ji shrine.
Prabhu gave this assurance in a meeting with top Ministers and senior BJP leaders this evening on first day of his two days visit. Earlier in the day, Prabhu along with family members visited Mata Vaishno Devi ji shrine and offered prayers.
In a meeting with Deputy Chief Minister Dr

Nirmal Singh, Industries and Commerce Minister Chander Prakash Ganga, three Ministers of State-Pawan Gupta, Priya Sethi and Sunil Sharma, BJP state president Sat Sharma, CA and other senior BJP leaders including Shamsher Singh Manhas, MP, Jugal Kishore Sharma, MP and Ashok Khajuria, MLC, Prabhu assured that Jammu will get a new Railway Station shortly.
Prabhu is reported to have agreed with demand raised by Dr Nirmal Singh and other BJP Ministers and leaders on construction of new Railway Station for Jammu to overcome congestion of present railway station, where number of trains and passengers has increased manifold over the years but the space and platforms remained the same.
Prabhu said he would ensure that the new Railway Station for Jammu is taken up shortly by the Railways Ministry.
It may be mentioned here that over a period of years, several new trains and DMUs have been introduced to Jammu, Katra and Udhampur but there was no increase in platforms of Jammu Railway Station. Also, space for the passengers remained unchanged.
The Railways Minister also agreed to another demand raised by the BJP Ministers and leaders for manning all railway crossings in the State to avoid any mishap.
He said the foot or over head bridges would be constructed at all unmanned crossings.
Prabhu reiterated his assurance for survey on Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch and Lakhanpur-Basohli-Bhaderwah railway line shortly to examine feasibility of the routes and undertake work.
The proposal for Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch railway line was mooted long back but previous UPA Government had shelved it.
However, the BJP Government at the Centre has promised fresh survey on the railway line and undertake work if the line was found feasible. The line was proposed via Akhnoor-Sunderbani and Nowshera.
The people from twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch had for the long been demanding linking of the two districts with rail line. This rail line was also important from strategic point of view as both Rajouri and Poonch have long LoC with Pakistan.
Prabhu will tomorrow lay foundation stone for construction of Escalators, Lifts, Multiplex Complex, Executive Lounge and Mechanized Laundry at Jammu Railway Station before returning to New Delhi.
An official handout said:-
The Railway Minister spoke about the initiatives taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi both within the country and abroad to revive the Indian economy that had witnessed slump during the previous Government. He highlighted the positive impact of the Prime Minister’s foreign visits and economic cooperation with world countries in improving FDI across so many sectors in India. He said railways have initiated major reforms keeping in line with the economic agenda of the Prime Minister.
Prabhu said that while at the international level, many developed nations are undergoing economic distress resulting in their recession, “India under the leadership of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has not only withstood the pressure but our country is moving on a positive growth curve and would emerge as a global economic power in near future”, he elaborated.
While referring to the new initiatives undertaken by the Government under the leadership of Prime Minister, the Railway Minister said that the new and innovative initiatives like ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ have a huge potential to transform India and improve the delivery system exponentially besides creating a sense of accountability, transparency and credibility and also involving the people in day-to-day governance.
Prabhu said that Indian Railways is also taking steps to connect Jammu and Kashmir State with rest of the country through railway line starting from the northern district of Baramulla and in this regard the project which was left in limbo has been fast paced by holding regular periodical meetings about its implementation besides providing the requisite funds for it.
“In order to ensure that the handicraft sector which is one of the main pillars of the State’s economy gets the requisite boost, the railways will be contributing its bit by ensuring that it is promoted and propagated through e-retailing so that its market grows across the nation and it would in turn boost the economy of this part of country”, he said.
Referring to the initiatives being undertaken in the Tourism Sector of the State, the Minister said that special tourist trains with open roof tops would be introduced shortly so that the tourist related activities get a boost. He said new and special trains would be run in the Jammu sector which would cater to the huge rush of pilgrims coming from different parts of the country to pay their obeisance at Shri Mata Vaishnu Devi and other holy places in the State.
While responding to the demands of the legislators and party leaders, the Minister said that a new satellite terminal would also be undertaken at Jammu to decongest the existing railway station in Jammu.
Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Nirmal Singh while speaking on the occasion said that the Central Government has been quite liberal in extending its support to the State by way of several schemes in different sectors. He said that the new railway projects being undertaken in Lakhanpur-Billawar-Bhaderwah and Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch would go a long way in providing the much needed railway connectivity to the people living in these areas and boost trade, commerce and tourism related activities.
The legislators and leaders projected several demands which include construction of a new railway satellite station at Kunjwani, two railways stations at Tikri and Dharam Kund, fast pacing the Jammu-Poonch railway line, science trains for the students, increasing the halting time of trains at the Jammu railway station, undertaking Sadbhavna like programmes for creating perceptional management in youth, separate bogies for females in Banihal-Srinagar and other routes, exploring the provision of starting mono rails in Jammu-Srinagar and declaring the old railway line adjoining the Kala Kendra as a heritage site.

attack was launched soon after a combing operation was carried out by the army yesterday in the area between Air base installation and Chakki river, police said.
The attackers were met with strong resistance from the security personnel who were already alert to the possibility of an attack, top sources said in Delhi, adding that the terrorists therefore could not enter the air base and managed to reach only to the langer area on the outside.
SSP R K Bakshi said that four suspected militants were killed in the battle.
Two jawans were also martyred and six sustained injuries.
Security establishment was already on alert and anticipating an attack after an SP of Punjab police was abducted by a group of armed men in army uniform on Thursday night. The attackers thrashed the officer before dumping him from vehicle.
After the incident, the combing operation was launched in the border areas of Pathankot and Gurdaspur district.
The attackers are confined to non-operational area, police said.
Helicopters, NSG commandos and SWAT teams have been engaged to kill the militants, police said.
The encounter started at 3.30 am, police said.
The strike is believed to be launched by Jaish-e-Mohammad, officials said, adding that the target was to destroy military installations.
Efforts are to keep one remaining terrorist confined to a limited area so that no collateral damage is done, police said.
The terrorists, with huge quantity of RDX in their possession, made their way to air force base from back side where there is a jungle, they said.
Meanwhile, authorities said that the helicopters and other equipment at the Air base are safe.
The technical area of the air force station is safe, police said, adding that entire area had been cordoned off. (Agencies)

JAMMU, Dec 19: The Union Railway Ministry has launched the work on war-footing to create separate Railway Division in Jammu and has posted new Additional Divisional Railway Manager (ADRM) to expedite the work of bifurcation of existing Firozpur Division in Punjab and supervise the entire process including raising much needed infrastructure for it.
Highly placed sources in the Northern Railways at Firozpur and Delhi told the Excelsior that with the placing of D C Sharma as OSD (Officer on Special Duty) for the creation of new full fledged Jammu

Railway Division, the process has already been set in motion by the Railways authorities but with the posting of AK Rana as ADRM for Jammu two days back, the work is being expedited on the project. A dedicated team of Northern Railways officials has already been constituted involving Divisional Railway Manager Firozpur, Anuj Parkash.
While the paper work with regard to the roadmap for this prestigious project has already been almost completed, the process of bifurcation including shifting of some staff from Firozpur Division to Jammu Railway Division is being commenced within couple of days. The Firozpur Divisional head has also sought the written consent from the J&K Railway employees working in Punjab, Himachal and other areas falling under him, for their placement in Jammu and Kashmir. About 3000 to 3500 employees are being shifted to this new Railway Division at the initial stage, the sources added.
A new large building with the estimated cost of Rs 125 crore is being constructed to house the Divisional Headquarters just closer to Jammu Railway Station. The site for the purpose has already been identified by the authorities. The Union Railway Ministry has already indicated to keep separate budgetary provisions for the creation of this new Railway Division at Jammu in the coming Rail Budget.
Sources further said that new ADRM, Rana is likely to assume the charge at Jammu within couple of days after formally joining at Firozpur on Monday or Tuesday. He will operate from Jammu headquarters only and also coordinate with the Firozpur Division officials till Jammu Railway Division is made fully functional with the appointment of DRM here. From April 2016, the new Jammu Railway Division is likely to made fully operational.
A senior Railway official at Firozpur disclosed that Rana has been placed at Jammu and he is arriving at Firozpur on Monday or Tuesday. Thereafter, he would join his place of posting at Jammu. He said Firozpur Railway Division having nearly 1550 kms operational area is largest and oldest Division of the Indian Railways in the northern region. It has area of operation in Punjab, J&K and Himachal Pradesh and controls 235 big, medium and small railway stations. Amritsar to Atari section, falling under this Division is said to be the oldest one, where first train during the British rule was made operational in 1862.
Since partition of the country in 1947, this Railway Division was allowed to continue its operation from there despite being at the extreme corner and closer to Indo-Pak border. Operationally, now the Railways authorities were feeling difficult to monitor activities smoothly in parts of Kashmir, Udhampur-Katra and Banihal- Baramulla sections being far away from Firozpur Divisional headquarters. He said the area of operation of Jammu Railway Division is also being defined.
It will have the jurisdiction of entire Jammu and Kashmir up to Baramulla. In Punjab it will have operational control of Pathankot up to Mukerian on Pathankot- Jallandhar section and also from Pathankot to Gurdaspur and Batala on Pathankot- Amritsar section. Parts of Himachal including Pathankot-Kangra-Joginder Nagar section will also come under Jammu Railway Division.
Responding to a question, the senior Railway official said that Union Railway Ministry is contemplating to extend Railway lines in the most difficult and mountainous region of Ladakh including Kargil and Leh towns besides Uri and Kupwara near the LoC in Kashmir besides Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu sector as per Defence point of view. It will help in the free and much comfortable movement of troops up to Pakistan and China border. It would also help the Northern Railways to keep effective control of the activities in these far-flung areas from Jammu Railway Division.
When asked about the additional facilities at Jammu Divisional Headquarters to be raised by Railways, the Sr DM Firozpur said that like other important Divisions, the Jammu Division would also get separate budget every year from Railway Ministry. The proposal of extending Railway platforms at Jammu is already under active consideration and with sufficient funds being provided to new Division, it would automatically happen shortly.
Besides this, Jammu Railway Station would get new facelift. The waiting halls capacity would be increased. There is great pressure of Mata Vaishnodevi pilgrims and security forces besides tourists at this station. New flats for the staff would be raised shortly besides generating sufficient parking area for visitors and staff. A new 100- room Railway Hotel with Restaurant for yatris is also coming up at Jammu Railway Station.
Former Railway Employees Union leader and State president of BSP, Tarsem Khullar said that besides full fledged Railway Division at Jammu and extension of Railway platforms, setting up of Rail Coach factory near Jammu and Railway bridge workshop at Kathua are the old demands of the people of this region and Railway Union. While two demands have been met, for the remaining two, there is need to exert pressure on the Union Government.
He said that Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs from Jammu region should exert pressure on the Union Railway Ministry for these two remaining issues. Mr Khullar disclosed that first train arrived Jammu in October 1972 and now after the long wait of over 43 years, the Jammu is getting Railway Division status. There were three platforms and just three passenger trains operating at that time and even today their number remains the same despite the fact that at least 35 trains are operating daily from this station.
